Buffalo is a great location to raise a family. It has that small-town charm with a sense of "family" in the community. Downtown has many locally owned shops, including a local brewery, with a variety of merchants. There is a public-owned pool that is free to everyone in the summer. There are a lot of things to do around town for any age, and if you need more excitement, just drive 10 miles up the Big Horn Mountains to have access to lots of outdoor amenities, including skiing, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, camping, and more!
Review Buffalo
I moved to Buffalo WY, to give my children a better future. In a small close knit community. You have the mountains right in your own backyard. Most homes are in walking distance from schools,parks and downtown. They have a lot of happenings in the summer. One for what we are becoming famous for long-mire days. The schools are nice here. However it would be nice if town offered more things to do in the winter. If you don't enjoy beginning out in the snow. it would also be nice if they had a few more restaurant here along with the stores if they would have prices equal to the bigger stores so I would be able to shop locally. Also if they had more programs for children with special needs. Other then those couple of issues,which we have managed to work out by going out of town for. Buffalo is a great place to live and I would never move.
The job market is growing. There are jobs available, just not a huge diversity of jobs. If you and a spouse are looking for specific jobs, good luck!
